Queen's responds to Hurricane Katrina disaster
The faculty, staff and students of Queen's University have been moved by recent events in New Orleans and on the Gulf Coast, and join with their peers and colleagues at other institutions across the continent in wishing to be of help to victims of Hurricane Katrina.
Queen's will give special consideration to any qualified students, displaced by the hurricane and its aftermath, who would seek admission to the university on a visiting or provisional basis, as recommended by the presidents of Gulf Coast universities. Queen's will provide all possible help in arranging financial assistance and accommodation for students while they are here.
Enquiries should be directed to the Office of the University Registrar.
In academic areas where capacity exists, Vice-Principal (Academic) Patrick Deane is initiating a special effort to make the opportunity for study at Queen's known to affected students. He is also pursuing other means by which scientific and social expertise to be found at Queen's can be made available to the recovery and reconstruction effort.
